Thankyou thankyou thankyou so much for this post Russell. I first blogged about this in October last year. This is one of the only common sense posts or articles to appear on the subject throughout the last year. Thankyou so much. (My original blogpost focused more on the manufactured media hype http://tricklenz.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/legal-highs-synthetic-outrage/ )
Would have been fantastic to see Flattr take off more so than it has. What do you think of a Universal Basic Income solving the problem? Free people up for creative works and allow any ad revenue/freelance/contract/part time work providing the cream on top?
